What did you do during your time off?
I came to school and got ahead of my school work. I also, worked more hours at my job which I love but I kept busy because I wanted to make sure I was setting myself up for success. I didn’t want to let myself get lazy in the middle of the school semester. I know myself and if I got lazy it would be hard for me to get back on track. I mostly came to school and started working on projects that were going to be due when we got back to school. I have a work hard, play hard mindset and I don’t think I worked hard enough yet. I focused more getting ahead and school work so I had a relaxing time off. I slept in more and went to the gym for about 2 hours. I kept everything simple and easy. Some people say my time off was boring but I feel that I have more energy now to focus more on what matters to me (business). I think that to each is own and if you did something else share it with me. I need to learn more about things that Maryland has to offer. So please share post your ideas.
My name is Ernie Gomez, I am a junior in the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) attending The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) campus.
I was born and in Los Angeles CA, and moved to Hawaii when I was 2O years old. I moved to Maryland in order to attend the prestigious Robert H. Smith School of Business at UMD.
After graduating high school, I joined the Marine Corp but after eight years of service, I enrolled in college. My decision enabled me to obtain my Associates Degree in Business and Mathematics, at Palomar College in San Diego, California. After my move from California to Maryland, I looked for a top ranked business school that could help me further my education. The Robert H. Smith school easily became my top choice. When I was applying for college at Maryland, I learned of USG and the great resources available to students. After acquiring more information about USG, I just couldn’t resist.
If you don’t know me!
Working on cars.
Who inspires me?
Anyone and everyone inspires me, because I know I can learn from every person I meet. However, I admire Eric Thomas who famously quoted, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful.”
Words that describe me:
Humble, Compassionate, Powerful, Honorable
My goal is to move back to California, next to the beach and buy a home also in HAWAII.
I am a humble, compassionate and honorable individual who strives to accomplish my life goals. If you see me around school, feel free to say “Hi” and start a conversation. USG is my #1 pick and I am happy to be a part of the USG community. I hope you enjoy my blogs and if you have any suggestions please feel free to reply to my post.
